Aon and cyan offer a new kind of preventive, digital security with the introduction of Aon’s CySec App. The app is now available in Aon’s corporate design in the Android Play Store and iOS App Store, initially in Austria and Switzerland, and protects Android and iOS devices against online threats such as viruses, malware or phishing attacks. Both partners see massive demand for such a product and want to offer the new solution worldwide in a second step.
”In the time of the COVID-19 virus, frequent cyber-attacks on mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops have increased massively. As functional as these devices may be, they represent the weakest link in the security system. With the Aon CySec App, we are now closing a serious security gap, especially for companies and private individuals who have only been able to protect themselves against such threats to a limited extent so far. With this app we offer our customers and all other mobile device users a preventive, digital cyber protection.Cyrill SennhauserMember of the Aon Executive Board
